Hasbro 0208 569 1234 | The Nerf Elite 2.0 Shockwave RD-15 blaster offers customisation options including three tactical rails, a barrel attachment point and a stock attachment point to help kids optimise their blaster for battle. The pump-action Shockwave RD-15 has a 15-dart rotating drum which will swamp targets. Kids can either pull the priming slide back and press the trigger to unleash one dart, or hold down the trigger and keep moving the slide to bulk-fire all 15. The blaster comes complete with 30 official Nerf darts; 15 for the drum and 15 for reloads. The Shockwave RD-15 can fire darts up to 90 feet (27m). The Nerf Elite 2.0 Commander RD-6 blaster also has tactical rails, a barrel attachment point and a stock attachment, so battlers can customise it the way they want before every Nerf game. This blaster has a 6-dart rotating drum and features the same firing options as the bigger Shockwave RD-15; either fire one dart, or all of them. The blaster includes 12 Nerf darts.

KAP Toys 01635 255725 | KAP Toys has its roots to the Outdoor Toys category, and as such has a deep understanding of what goes into developing the highest quality ride-on toys. The company is continuing its strong distribution relationship with Falk throughout 2021. Falk’s popular licensed JCB range will benefit from further innovation and development that will bring enhanced play patterns to the outdoor space this year. The new JCB Excavator and First Tractor foot-to-floor ride-on, both in the iconic yellow and black colourway associated with the brand, offer any outdoor retailer a solid base of JCB items with which to engage consumers. KAP Toys’ award-winning own-brand Clever Trike will be supported through 2021 with enhanced marketing efforts, reflecting what the company believes will be a summer of increased enthusiasm for getting outside and enjoying the good weather. KAP also expects to see higher than average demand for active lines, and is working closely with its retail partners on forecasts. Falk’s factory is located in France, and first 2021 shipments have already been making their way through the new UK customs process. KAP Toys is confident that if a retailer forecasts it, the company can deliver it, and is urging buyers to get in touch ASAP to maximise on sales.
